Please bring in a complete change of clearly labeled clothing in your child’s name. It will be kept in your child's cubby. As the seasons change, your child should be appropriately dressed for the weather. 

 Squirrels' Nest is a very busy and sometimes messy place. Please dress your child in clothing that is comfortable, simple to get on and off and can be "messed up".

 We do not allow open toe shoes or sandals. No crocs. Running shoes are preferred because of their very active physical play both indoors and outdoors.
